Pre-paid legal plans promote preventive law
Many people believe they need the services of a lawyer, under a pre-paid legal service scheme, to solve a legal problem or resolve an intricate situation. Often, your lawyer’s most valuable help could be before you get involved in legal trouble.
When you sign up for a pre-paid legal plan, you have the right to unlimited toll-free telephone access to your attorney. The sound advice and consultation given to you by your lawyer will help you take the necessary steps to detect and resolve any potential legal problems before they take more dangerous proportions. This is called in legal jargon “therapeutic jurisprudence” or “preventive law”. Just as preventive medicine helps prevent disease by detecting their symptoms, preventive law helps prevent serious legal consequences by detecting early problems. In an increasingly litigious society, there is real concern that assets you have worked long and hard to accumulate may be attacked by creditors and litigants, through no fault of your own. By the time a potential claim or liability is identified, it is too late to act.A competent attorney’s advice is your best option to minimize your exposure to potential risks and protect yourself from legal problems getting out of hand.
